North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses after five residential properties across Harrogate were broken into yesterday.
Among the items stolen in the spate of burglaries were cash, including foreign currency, and jewellery. The incidents occurred on Claro Road, Crowberry Drive, Yarrow Drive, Hall Lane and Holly Park in Huby between 8.30am and 9pm.

He added: "We are doing all we can to find those responsible for these offences and to prevent others becoming a victim.”
